Alabama's new gun law now in effect

Posted: Updated:
HUNSTVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Several new Alabama laws go into effect Thursday, including the new law that expands gun rights.

If you have a concealed weapon permit, you can take a gun with you to work, as long as you leave it in your car or truck.

But this does not apply to all employers.

If you work on Redstone Arsenal, you can not bring a gun because the arsenal is under federal jurisdiction.

The law also lowers the age to get a concealed weapon permit to 18.

Morgan and Marshall counties are holding town hall meetings to help people understand the new law. For a list of meeting times, click HERE.
